to do nation building here at home because that is the consensus where the american people are at john. but i wouldn't call it bipartisanship. romney lost this debate on points but he won it because he contradicted the image barack obama has sought to portray of him, reckless, bombing people, putting troops in syria. that is why you are seeing the steady momentum of romney which as of today puts him up in the gallup poll 5. >> el more? >> you can cite the national poll all you want but the election is all about ohio and the president is still doing well there. mr. romney went into this debate not wanting to win, and he didn't. but he wanted to reassure people he wasn't going back to the george w. bush ollis policies. no more iraqs. and he wanted to assure women he was not a war monger. >> uh-huh. >> talking about a peaceful planet and gender quality in the middle east. it is astounding how he has shifted his policies. in fairness he has two sets of advisers. reasonable people working for him and some who would like to reenact the bush years. i think he hears from beth the realists and

what all of that could mean for both candidates with john dickerson. he's in our washington bureau. good morning john. >> good morning. >> chip reid mentioned just a little while ago north carolina virginia ohio all in the direct path of this storm. how do you think it will affect early voting and both candidates in these last days before the election? >> well it's already affected the schedules of the candidates. and you know when a candidate comes to town it's not just they come and give their message and people cheer. i want initiates a whole string of activity with getting people to come to the event and those people turned into volunteers in some states ohio i was just in ohio last week people were going from the rally to go vote. if the candidate doesn't visit all of that activity doesn't happen. so where the candidate is and events that are being postponed or cancelled in virginia and there aren't too many in north carolina but in virginia particularly and later in ohio that would be a problem for the campaign. >> john, might this tip the scales in favor
neighbors to the north in new york and new jersey. if your lights never went out, our good friend john from chantilly said give credit to the storm from over the summer. the reasoning is the der etcho in june took down the weaker trees and some of the infrastructure was replaced. that left more infrastructure for sandy to damage and the bright lining for a devastating storm. make some sense, john. there have to be a finite number of weak trees at one time and that herd has been thinned around here. and walton from virginia who said he is 91, had this to say. i believe god has spoken. god has given d.c. a washing. it is time to clean up washington. we survived sandy but never lost power. suspect the hurricane was not natural but hot air from all of those political candidates running for office. well, craig, that would explain some things and it would comfort us with the idea that maybe we won't see anything like this again for another 4 years. and finally, a hearty note of thanks from bruce in crownsville, maryland. i found that i tuned straight to channel 9 to learn first- hand about the st
winds continuing to dangle more than 70 stories up. it is right down the street from this building. john miller spoke with two city engineers who took on the draws task of making sure the crane doesn't fall to the street below. >> reporter: during the storm that snapped the boom off the crane with winds gusting through and swinging the hanging boom back and forth two new york city building department engineers had to get to the top of the building and answer the question would the boom hold or come crashing down? for most of the long climb the only way up was the stairs. >> i've never heard anything as loud as wind howling in my life as we got to the 48th floor and you have to apply so much pressure to open the door. i was with him. we got into the hallway and you could almost get stucked right out. >> reporter: michael and timothy had to check each of the structural braces that held the tower with the crane on top the side of the building. >> we were concerned about the upper most part. if that tie had failed that means the mast could fall. 1,000 foot mast. >> reporter: if the climb up
. and then this from our good friend john from chantilly that says they seem wise beyond their years. rg3 says the right thing and never gives the other side to put anything up on the bulletin board. of course, he's worried about the carolina defense, not about cam newton. on the other side of the ball, cam newton is not having a good year, but i bet that he is wanting to face one of the worst defenses in the nfl. i'm thinking that he will probably light up the redskins on sunday. you know what, john, it would not be the first time that the team got well against the skins. on the other hand, rg3 was due for an off game. and so i'm looking for him to perhaps light up the panthers. speaking of the bulletin boards. here is a quote from the panthers defensive end, regarding our quarterback. and if you put them on the background, you hit them in the face. i would feel like he's going to go into his shell just a little bit. he will need to think about it. he's a quarterback. and that's what they do. okay, you know what, hardy? you will feel like a turtle in the shell, trying to catch up with rg3. pu

and john dickerson. as we heard the politicians can take these numbers and spin them both ways. on the one hand there's more job creation. on the other hand there's more people looking for work who can't find it. >> i don't think it changes the whole economic narrative we've had. so therefore you'll have a continue jays of that exact debate. i think it was moderately encouraging the numbers in october and also they got revised higher in terms of job growth. it means we have this firm trend of steady but kind of slower than we would like to see growth in jobs. really both sides can play it. if you came into this thing thinking anything 7% unemployment is unacceptable and need political change it won't change the story. the trend is there and consumer confidence in the job market actually has picked up to a four year high. something is going on that people feel like maybe a recovery has taken hold. >> we have a housing market that's improving. you saw the revision there's. we had an upward revision of 50,000 more jobs created than first thought. in september 34,000 more
